In this edition, we find out about a Palm Harbor resident who came here from across the pond.
Town: Palm Harbor
Started: More years ago than I care to remember
Why did you start your blog?
I answered a 'Patch' question about 'My favorite place for breakfast' in Palm Harbor.
Where are you originally from and what made you want to move to Palm Harbor?
I am a 'Brit' from London, but my family is in the US and the weather in the UK is rubbish!
What is your favorite topic to write about?
Life events. People are way too serious about themselves and what they do. There is an amusing side to most situations, and life is too short to be perpetually dismal. A glass should be half full, not half empty.
What do you do when you're not blogging?
I am retired, but still have little free time. Sit on a couple of boards, sing in a choir, be an active grandmother, spend a lot of time at the local YMCA, and think of ways to rennovate my home.
When do you find time to write?
Late evenings, almost always.
What have you learned from your own blog?
That I am not as amusing as I think I am...else more people would read it.
